Of all the lying, devious and incomprehensible nonsense being uttered after the Sandy Hook tragedy, none are more blatantly and overtly racist than the verbal vomit gushing from liberal anti-liberty websites, news sites and blogs. If anything, liberals are once again proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that they believe that African Americans aren't worthy of constitutional rights nor are they worthy of the right to defend themselves and their families against violent predators. To avoid the issue of the right to bear arms, anti-gun liberals are attempting to concoct a hideously false paradigm that the 2nd amendment itself is racist and was specifically added to the bill of rights to guarantee the perpetuation of slavery.
The Second Amendment was Ratified to Preserve Slavery
The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says "State" instead of "Country" (the Framers knew the difference - see the 10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia's vote.What liberals fail to grasp or even acknowledge about the Constitution and the Bill of rights in particular is that the Bill of Rights was added as specific prohibitions against federal powers to encroach on state powers. Gun rights and the right to bear arms were so sacrosanct that they were one of numerous reasons for the American Revolution because the British did indeed disarm Americans.
If you thought Sandy Hook was bad, the British massacres of disarmed colonists were far worse
The first incident that foreshadowed the brutality that was to come occurred on March 5, 1770, in Massachusetts. Labeled the "Incident on King Street," American patriots called it the Boston Massacre....Precisely because the British attempted to disarm the people, Americans greatly feared a powerful centralized government and demanded that the powers of the American federal government be specific, limited and clearly enumerated.
The first shots of the war were fired between arms-bearing colonial militiamen and British regulars at the battles of Lexington and Concord, in Massachusetts, in which the colonial militia gained the upper hand. The battles did little to the British, however, except strengthen their resolve.
Shortly after the battles British Gen. Thomas Gage, the military governor of Massachusetts and commander-in-chief of the roughly 3,000 British military forces garrisoned in Boston, was ordered to disarm the rebels, who were known to have hidden weapons around Concord, and to imprison the leaders of the rebellion.
Founding father George Mason said:
“I ask, who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.”Gun rights are so critically important as a natural right that they are enshrined in the constitutions of all 50 states, here.
Similar statements were made by Founders James Madison and Richard Henry Lee. Mason worried that someday only a privileged class of men would bear arms, resulting in tyranny.
Mason also said: “the best and most effectual way to enslave” a nation is “to disarm the people.”
For a freaking anti-gun liberal to unequivocally assert that the right to bear arms was based purely on slavery proves their utter contempt for African Americans, their lives and the lives of their families. What is true, however, is that gun control itself is deeply rooted in racism.
Racist Origins of Gun Control and the War on Drugs
The KKK began as a gun-control organization. Before the Civil War, blacks were never allowed to own guns. During the Civil War, blacks kept guns for the first time – either they served in the Union army and they were allowed to keep their guns, or they buy guns on the open market where for the first time there’s hundreds of thousands of guns flooding the marketplace after the war ends. So they arm up because they know who they’re dealing with in the South. White racists do things like pass laws to disarm them, but that’s not really going to work. So they form these racist posses all over the South to go out at night in large groups to terrorize blacks and take those guns away. If blacks were disarmed, they couldn’t fight back.....Not only are racist anti-gun and anti-natural rights liberals ferociously committed to disarming African Americans, they've built a monstrous web of anti-natural rights laws to guarantee that African Americans will forever remain unarmed and defenseless. Draconian victimless laws specifically target African Americans and ensnare them in a judicial systems that perpetuates convictions and imprisonment for victimless crimes which, of course, permanently deprives them of their right to bear arms.
The Ku Klux Klan, Ronald Reagan, and, for most of its history, the NRA all worked to control guns. The Founding Fathers? They required gun ownership—and regulated it. And no group has more fiercely advocated the right to bear loaded weapons in public than the Black Panthers—the true pioneers of the modern pro-gun movement. In the battle over gun rights in America, both sides have distorted history and the law, and there’s no resolution in sight.
However, the racist liberals remain persistent and invoke their hero, Franklin D. Roosevelt, as the poster boy for unfinished gun control.
Franklin Roosevelt: The Father of Gun Control
Gun control is one of the great pieces of unfinished business for the Democratic Party....Liberals worship FDR because, among other things, FDR and his NY bankster friends were instrumental in funding and arming the rise of Hitler and Nazism that created WW II and vaporized 50-60 million folks according to the most conservatives estimates of WW II death tolls.
Roosevelt’s original proposal for what would become the National Firearms Act of 1934, the first federal gun control law, sought to tax all firearms and establish a national registry of guns. When gun owners objected, Congress scaled down FDR’s proposal to allow only for a restrictive tax on machine guns and sawed-off shotguns, which were thought to be gangster weapons with no usefulness for self-defense.
Congress watered down FDR’s bill because of concerns about maintaining the right of people in rural communities, where there was little police presence, to have handguns for protection—not because of the Second Amendment.
Liberals and the Democratic Party are the Party of Death. Who got us involved in WW I, WW II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Balkan Wars? All liberal, progressive Democrats - Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson and Bill Clinton.
When it comes to the Party of Death, the Republicans have gladly joined the Democrats and progressives in their lust for devastating and perpetual wars. The only reason the Republican Party lamely supports the 2nd amendment is because the Republican base consists of avid and determined 2nd amendment advocates.
Meanwhile, liberals continue to opine for the right of the government to kill defenseless folks and anybody else that it perceives as an enemy of the state. Moreover, liberals adhere to the theory that you have a duty to die when confronted by a violent predator or government official.
A retired Pulitzer Prize winning Democrat journalist for the Des Moines Register actually called for the deaths and/or executions of gun owners in a rant that included declaring the NRA a terrorist organization and repealing the 2nd amendment.
Kaul: Nation needs a new agenda on guns
Repeal the Second Amendment...Now that's so liberal, so progressive and so Democratic. If the Democrats declare you expendable then by golly you are expendable.
Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal...
Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.
If I was African American, I'd be heading straight to the reddest of red states where I'd know that I would absolutely have the right to defending myself and my family against violent predators. In liberal states, African Americans are sitting ducks.
One final note: The Black Panthers were absolutely right in their assertion that the government doesn't want African Americans to ever be armed.
